Perry County Memorial Hospital, Medical Office Building
The 25,000 sf medical office building was developed to dramatically upgrade facilities for physical therapy and to free up space in the existing hospital for other patient services. Growing demand for physical therapy in a hospital-based setting led to program areas that include a therapy pool, fitness gymnasium, and other treatment areas on the first floor and physician’s offices on the second floor. Services are accessible from the atrium entry, which also serves to bring daylight into the fitness gym.
Located across the street from the main hospital, the freestanding building uses brick and other exterior finishes similar to the hospital. The dedicated setting for physical therapy with treatment services and doctor’s offices in close proximity is attractive to both patients and medical professionals whose services are in high demand.
